Following hours of foreign dictionary studying at university and a tapas-and-cerveza filled year in Madrid, Victoria decided it was high time to put her French and la belle vie Parisienne to the test. This Brit from near-London initially worked as an enthusiastic-yet-underpaid English teacher and has now become a translator-copywriter-community manager for a French website. Two years after arriving in Paris, she has had ample opportunity to fall amoureuse with every single arrondissement of the city of love and light, from picture postcard Montmartre to the winding backstreets of the almost provincial 20ème.

I just visited Paris in December and wrote practically the same blog post when I returned with photos of the tree outside Notre Dame and the windows displays at Printemps and Galeries Lafayette. I loved Paris at Christmastime!

Have been visiting Paris frequently for the past 10-years and one of the best times is late November when the stores are in the mood but the frenzy hasn’t peaked yet. We love Market strolls which have become the highlight of our visits! Nice job on the pix!!

Yeah!! Thank you. I’ll be in Paris at the end of the week to celebrate Christmas for the second time. One of my favorite memories was visiting Sacre Coeur and getting to hear the nuns deliver mass. I’m not religious and I didn’t understand it, but I thought it was beautiful. I also love the Christmas markets as well. Love vin chaud! Yum.

lovely collection of holiday spirit! XO

Gorgeous… The city of lights looks magical… xv
